OOOH, great list! I highly recommend "A Chair for My Mother" and another Vera B Williams book, "More, More, More Said the Baby". Also anything by Kevin Henkes. Phantom gave Henkes' books to Younger Daughter and they remain her favorites today.

elswhere said...

This is a fabulous list!

liz said...

I'm a tad bit disappointed that they don't have any Boynton on it. I mean hello, "The Going to Bed Book"? "Snuggle Puppies?"

What are they thinking to leave her out?

elswhere said...

Well, yeah, it's true. Or "Hippos go Berserk!"

joy said...

you MUST get 'don't let the pigeon drive the bus!'. freakin hilarious!! i laughed out loud reading it. my babies have no idea what i was saying, but they had a great time hearing me crack up!

Phantom Scribbler said...

You know Simms Taback???

(Sound of Phantom boggling).

liz said...

I met him once or twice. My sister, of course, knew him pretty well.

Running2Ks said...

Wow, you know famous people!

Boynton missing: a crime. That list is its own meme. Also, Kevin Henkes--awesome.

Click Clack Moo--that is a funny one! I think I've basically read the same stuff as you.

Piece of Work said...

What a fantastic list. I'm amazed at how many of these I've never even heard of. NOte to self: get to the library.

Beanie Baby said...

No kidding on the Boynton.

Also--where's Milne?

Running2Ks said...

And like you said, Liz, Olivia--the pictures of that pig are PRICELESS!

We're not quite old enough for this list yet (right now, I'm just reading the No Hitting page over and over again from a Karen Katz book), but I'm going to save it for later. Thanks!
